Today was able to confirm that the hue pro Tasker add on is not working correctly. It does not seem to be interpreting the correct lights in presets. Can this be something that was also effected by same update that broke presets before?

+George Castro, sorry about that. Missed a period. Here is the correct link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.benchevoor.huepro.tasker

I have pushed the beta version into live production, so version 1.1.0 is available for download now. Should fix the issue!

Are you kidding me with this already I spent over 90 minutes the other day to fix 20 presets with 14 lights  on 6 devices and now today your latest update messed up all the lights again! This is not a simple app that I use every once in a while its the main way to control lights in my home. I dont think you would like not being able to correctly turn on or off lights in your home. I suggest you do some more testing and maybe more of a warning that you are going to change things either back or to a different way. EXTREMELY ANNOYED and FRUSTRATED with your app and how this has been updated recently.

Either latest hue pro or hue app update messed things up bad. None of my lights corresponded to the correct names Ave some don't even respond at all. Hope it's an easy fix as i used this EVERY DAY. Let me know if you need any info or feed back to help.

Thanks

They’re being banned from museums, art galleries, and sporting events faster than people can buy them, but that’s ok because selfie sticks are awful and deserve to disappear. However, designers Justin Crowe and Aric Snee may have found a way to redeem them with a selfie stick that looks like a human arm so a self-shot can help hide someone’s crushing loneliness.

Update fixed one of the issues. I Noticed two things (one I think you are aware of)
1:when restoring (importing) Presets the lights are not restoring correctly, you have to manually go and fix them so its almost a waste of time importing them and then fixing them. 
2: I noticed this prior to the issues from yesterday when restoring Widgets sometimes they import empty widgets and then you cant delete them so you are stuck with some empty widget (in the app itself under Preferences/Widget settings/Manage Widgets.

The app works again but it was a pain to redo all my settings as the backups of the settings were no good. Hope this helps in some way.

I recall Jason saying that they would like more emails to be sent in. Perhaps,  since he also mentioned how many great posts were made on the AAA community page, instead/in addition to the weekly email, a spotlight on a recent post or "post of the week" would be good. May also be a good conversation starter.

I have definitely posted and we've discussed posts from the community from time to time. I'd hesitate to do an all out "no more email, our comments come from the community" change but absolutely I love to bring in community posts if they are discussion worthy. Thank you for the suggestion!
